Spotlight Series: The Drifters

February 25, 2022 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm


Up on the Roof.  Under the Boardwalk.  This Magic Moment. There Goes My Baby.  Stand by Me. The list of hits goes on and on. The Drifters are one of rock & roll’s founding vocal groups. They were in the first class of legends to be initiated into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the first African American group to be inducted. Their classic tune “Under the Boardwalk” is the most played R&B record of all time.

From their inception in the early 1950’s until recently, The Drifters have had a symbiotic relationship with Rock & Roll legend George Treadwell, who discovered and managed such famous artists as Dinah Washington, Sarah Vaughn, and Nina Simone. Once again, the Treadwell family has put The Drifters back on tour in the United States – a monumental reunion celebrating their 50-year catalogue of memorable hits.
